“Pope will clinch 5-AAAA with a victory over Alexander (4-5). If Alexander wins, Chapel Hill (6-3) will win the region with a victory over Sprayberry (4-5).”

How does CHAPEL HILL at 6/3 or even 7/3 if they beat POPE win the REGION 5AAAA title…If both EAST and KELL win and POPE loses then EAST is 9 / 1 & KELL is 8 / 2 both better records than CHAPEL HILL!

Need some clarification here….

TICK…TICK…TICK…BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!

PLAY – IN – GAME THIS FRIDAY!!!!

GO RAIDERS!!! 2011 — ON TO THE DOME TOUR…BACK ON TRACK!!!

Cannon…
It is based on their Region Record and Sub-Region Seeding. CH is 5-1 in region play and so is Pope, Kell, & EP. If CH wins and Pope losses, CH would get the 1 seed because they are the 1 seed in their sub-region and EP is 2/Kell is 3. I don’t think it is a great way to decide the region champ but that is the clarification

@ Valdosta-Lowndes Co. (28 State Titles) , you remind me so much of ALI fighting past his prime, not wanting to admit that he was washed up! But Like Valdosta & Lowndes, he was good back in the day!!!! And another thing, whoever you guys send down here for the first 2 playoff games make sure they eat one of those good ole country cooked meals because that’s the only good thing they’re going the first round of the playoff… :) haha JUST LUV MY SOUTH GA.

Valdosta-Lowndes28titles — who do you think is going to win Friday night on Blazer Field? I’ll go out on a limb and predict Colquitt in a NOT CLOSE game.

Valdosta-LowndesCo 28 Titles Your name shows who your loyalty is to by you adding the “Co”. Every true die hard Lowndes fan will tell you in a heartbeat we dropped the “Co” when Lowndes “County” High school merged with Hahira High School in 1967 to form “LOWNDES HIGH SCHOOL”. Westside joined the next year! Yes we’re kinda sensitive about that.

Just saying……….

I’m from middle ga. an i belive Northside is a great team this year but their region is crap only good team other than them is Warner Robins which is getting close to being great. I hope they dont hit a wall in the 1st round this year because of their weak region good luck to the both of them.
